One of our main strengths is advanced analysis and design for complex structures. Our primary area of expertise is special structures, which include those with non-euclidean geometries, composite materials, and exposed elements that require both analytic and creative thinking. Our unique interdisciplinary teams blend technical grit with imagination. Our expertise in special structures includes transformable structures, sculptures, pedestrian bridges, and canopies. Our approach is to simplify, clarify, and establish rhythm.
